I have found a new relaxing screen saver. Just sit back and view an ocean of oil right in our backyard. All we have to do is suck the oil out of the water; it's like a big storage tank. Oil and sea water don't mix. Even ships use sea water to fill their fuel tanks when the fuel is low to maintain ballast.
Some people think this is Armageddon. It's a hole in the earth that is going to become the abyss for the beast and the false prophet to escape from Hades. It's a big old mess but when the relief wells are working it will stop. In a few years the gulf will recover and produce more oil and seafood. Sea food is 1% of the Louisiana economy, oil is 16%, it doesn't make sense to shut down the oil industry. We are Americans, we can solve this problem and clean up this mess. Since we are witnessing the apocalypse let's remember what John the Divine wrote:
And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!"
I will admit it, I own B.P. stock. Probably a third of Americans own some B.P. stock, whether they realize it or not. Let's not kill what's left of the economy by driving gasoline prices up to $7/gal. Remember last winter--- we are not going to stay warm this winter using pin-wheels or " bois de vache" (cow chips) for fuel. So in the mean time relax and watch the natural gas and oil spew forth and console yourself knowing we are sitting on an ocean of oil. Besides the real disaster is taking place in Washington D.C. The hemorrhaging red ink makes the gulf look like the driveway beneath my Oldsmobile.
